London, UK – 10th July Aqilla – providers of a Cloud Accounting Software Solution which combines all the features and tools required by today’s successful finance professional – announced today it has been featured as an “Emerging Solution” by Gartner, Inc. in the June 2017 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Core Financial Management Suites for Midsize, Large and Global Enterprises.

By being classified as an emerging solution, Aqilla have been recognised as a leading resource that offers “cloud financial management software” within the middle range market. Through being tracked by Gartner for inclusion into Magic Quadrant report Aqilla, has now been identified as key contributor within their field.

“Gartner’s inquiry data shows that there is a growing interest in cloud financial management suites “ said Hugh Scantlebury, CEO and Co-Founder of Aqilla, “traditionally finance professionals were adverse to changing their on-premise, heavily customised systems, but the latest releases of cloud-based services like ours have proven time and time again that finance professionals can enjoy the extensive functionality of on-premise systems, delivered simply, at considerably reduced cost, that can integrate with other systems and is available anywhere. All are highly compelling reasons to seriously consider a change.”

Gartner outline the fact that, in the last 12-18months, cloud core financial management suites have matured to the point they are disrupting a market which has been static for many years and reflects the increasing prevalence of postmodern ERP strategies.

Scantlebury continues “we describe Aqilla as a ‘postmodern ERP’ solution in recognition of the change in approach to software development, gone are the days of waiting months (if not years) to see a new product release, monolithic software development approaches don’t have the agility to support a mobile, disparate workforce, and struggle to integrate effectively with third party systems or specialist technologies”.

Aqilla is committed to providing users with a platform that grows with their needs and delivers results in an intuitive and easy to use application. Aqilla continue to extend the range of API’s and plugins to ensure easy integration into CRM, Business Intelligence, Excel and other backend systems.
